Beware! We chose red snapper fish but what was served was nothing like it. It was tough chewy and full of bones. My husband had to send his roti bread back as it was as hard as a cracker. The second roti was exactly the same. We think they re-heated it and served the same one again. We asked to speak with the chef and he said he was a different chef. He said red snapper as always like that! We have eaten snapper many times before all over the world and it had never been served like that before. They shrugged their shoulders!! When the bill came the fish was charged as mullet. What a way to treat returning customers. We had been twice before and really had wonderful service and super meals and the manager was very attentive. Pity it was his night off. Very disappointing. We wouldn’t recommend the Amal Restaurant.

We went here twice during our trip. Ate in the "beer garden" area. The food was amazing,we got to select from fresh seafood. The beer was always cold and the atmosphere was vibrant and chill. We even got to meet and chat with Mr. Amal himself.... he runs a great property.

I stayed at a nearby hotel which was lovely but I came here every day with my friend to the beach and restaurant. The staff are lovely, so friendly and became part of our holiday experience. The food is wonderful and very well priced. The beach bar is excellent and the beach dogs are friendly... Give them some water please! Definitely go to Amal!

We love the environment here, near to the beach and behind a railway tracks.

First they serve us some roti and salads for starters which is quite yummy. The main course of Fried Fish, Lobster and Crabs is very good.

A bit pricey but very good food.
